CORRECTION: Home Depot online sales

CORRECTION: Yikes! You’d think after weeks of crunching numbers for the release of our 2015 Retail Report, we’d be right on top of our numbers game. But no, it’s typo time again. In the latest issue of HARDLINES, we reported that Home Depot’s online sales are climbing, but in fact they will only account for upwards of 5% of overall sales in 2015, not 50%. And we expect that amount to be even less in Canada. Of course, the full, typo-free story about which way the country’s top retailers are going, and how much the industry has grown, is all in the HARDLINES Retail Report, being released today. That is not a typo. I said today! —Michael
